What happens when a tooth fairy falls in love with her dentist?
The dental community may never be the same.
Trixie Trident has a secret. Everyone knows she creates one-of-a-kind jewelry during the day. It
s what she does on her night job no one would ever guess. Shes a tooth fairy. Not the tooth fairy, just one of many. It would take her whole life just to combat the many misconceptions people have about TFs. Like how nobody wears tutus or uses a wand. Or stands three inches high. Nope, Trixie looks just like any other woman in her mid-twenties. And shed tell people all of that stuff. If she was allowed to. But shed sworn a sacred tooth fairy oath that shed never tell a soul. And she hadnt. Except for her best friend, who would never breathe a word to anyone.

Gray Keebler meets Trixie when she comes to his dental office as a new patient. He
s had lots of single women patients before, but not one has ever sparked his interest like Trixie. What is it about her thats so unique? He cant quite figure it out but hes determined to try, even when she turns him down for a second date. Trixie is attracted to Gray like shes never been to any man before. Hes what she always dreamed of in a man. And they even have the subject of teeth in common. But a relationship with the gorgeous dentist can never be. How could it when shes a tooth fairy? Not only cant she tell him, but hed never believe her anyway.

Review of book:
There are very few books that Ive enjoyed as much as Ruth J. HartmansPillow Talk.  In fact, this story had me literally laughing out loud at several points, and even as Im writing this review, theres a smile on my face.

Trixie Trident is a tooth fairy.  Not the tooth fairy, but one of several who help make childrens dreams everywhere come true, by exchanging their lost teeth for cash.  It would seem like a cushy job where the perks outweighed the drawbacks, but Trixie found that her unpredictable schedule made for a distinct lack of love life.  Enter Gray Keebler, DMD, the drool worthy, dreamy dentist that Trixie goes to when she loses a filling in a French fry.

Gray is handsome and has no shortage of female attention, but hes never been so taken with a patient before. Whenhe sees Trixie for the first time, its as if something clicks into place, and no matter how hard he tries to, he cant get her out of his mind.Gray could have easily been callous and conceited, considering his exceptional good looks, but I found him to be funny, kind, and kind of attractive in an awe shucks sort of way.  Watching he and Trixie do the dance around one another (it was a one step forward, two steps back kind of thing) was endearing, and I think really added to the plot.

Pillow Talk has a lot of kitschy type items in it Trixies name being only one of them yet I thought it really allowed me to get into the spirit that the author intended with the piece.  If you love lighthearted romance with a healthy dose of dental humor (or just humor period), Pillow Talk by Ruth J. Hartman is guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth without the dreaded cavities.
